Summer Learning in the news: Camp Wonder students get a Jumpstart

Summer Learning Programs in Ontario are once again making news!

About 650 children from the Greater Essex County District School Board’s Camp Wonder summer learning program enjoyed a “healthy fun-filled day” as part of the Jumpstart Games held at St. Clair College in Windsor.

As CBC.ca reports, “students from 23 schools across the region were involved in the games day at the St. Clair College Sportsplex. The event is part of Camp Wonder, a summer learning program with the public school board for children who might not get to attend summer camp otherwise.

“‘We understand it takes a village to raise a child,’ said Sharon Johnson, one of the coordinators of Camp Wonder and also a teaching consultant with the Greater Essex County District School Board.

“The camp has been running for seven years, and the number of campers continue to increase. The program has expanded from single-digit numbers in its first year to 32 classes this year. When school starts in September, Johnson said teachers can tell which children have attended the camp.”
